I WON!!!!!!

I bought some Krave products from Michelle ( a while back and I was really happy to know that she's a neighbor of my boyfriend. She delivered the items to my bf's house which was just a street away and I got so kilig because Krave is within my reach. No need for me to be stressed with shipping and waiting. We became (online) friends after that. 

So when she had this giveaway, I immediately joined. You see, Micmic is very generous, not just with things but also with kind words. She would often say nice things to me on facebook and I really appreciate that. 

So, with that said, let me show you the items that I got.

Product Review: e.l.f. Studio Lip Stain in Red Carpet

Hello everyone!! 

I was walking around looking for some cosmetics to buy when I saw this lip stain from e.l.f.. The saleslady talked me into buying it. She said that even after eating, the lip stain stayed on her lips. 

I decided to buy it and try it for myself. It claims that this lip stain achieves full coverage that lasts for hours. I picked the shade Red Carpet because it's red and I thought it's the perfect test-color. 

e.l.f. Studio Lip Stain in Red Carpet
This is what it looks like in its box. It costs P249.75 and you get 6ml of product. 

This is what the actual product looks like. On one end is the lip stain, on the other end is a clear gloss. 

If you are familiar with NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream, they have very similar texture. It's very soft and very pigmented. It says on the box that you have to allow it to dry for a matte finish. It takes about 2-3 minutes for it to dry and it's completely matte. I suggest that when you apply this, be extremely careful because it's really hard to remove once it's dry. 

Time check: 5:18pm

I only applied one coat of lip stain and you can really tell that it's highly pigmented. It's feels a bit dry. I know a lot of people don't really like the feel of matte lips  but I have to say that it's quite comfortable and easy to wear. It also didn't settle on the cracks of my lips. I didn't use the gloss since I really want to test the lip stain and I don't want the gloss to sabotage the result. 

Time Check: 8:12pm
This is the lip stain after eating. Three hours later and it is still bright as it was three hours ago. A little bit of color trasfered to my spoon & glass but overall, it stayed on. 

Time Check: 10:14pm & 12:02am
I still have red lips after 5 hours but some of the color is fading. And 7 hours later, it looks like I have a pink lipstick on. I have to say that I was very surprised with this product, I never thought it would last for 7 hours. I went home and removed it with my oil-based makeup remover and there's still some color that just wouldn't budge. 

Full coverage
Long lasting
Matte finish
Good quality
Dries quickly
Available at all e.l.f. counters
Soft texture and easy to blend

Poor shade selection (avaible in 5 shades only)
It dries my lips a bit (but it's nothing I can't handle) 
Can be very hard to remove without an oil-based makeup remover
Not suitable for very dry lips

3 out of 5 kittens

Repurchase? Yes, I would like to try the other shades and see if they're as good as this shade. 

Overall, I like this product. I don't need to re-touch everytime I eat or drink and the shade is very pretty. 

Thank you for reading! God Bless us all!

Makeover: Wowenkho Interns

Since I'm not really doing anything, I decided to give some of my boyfriend's interns a little makeover.  

Jessica Vargas

To lift the eyes and give it more dimension, I did this very angled purple smokey eyes on her. And since all the drama is in the eyes, I used Avon Lipstick in Mystic Beige to make her lips nude. 

I used Ever Bilena Stick Foundation in Creme
 After watching MaricarlJanah's video for a camera-ready face, I followed some of her tips there and I'm very happy with the outcome.

I used Nichido Eyeliner in Deep Plum as base for her eye makeup

Curling her hair with my pink Vidal Sassoon Flat Iron

Diana Semacio

For Diana, I did a brown smokey makeup look.  The shape of her eyes is so pretty as well as her lips.

I used Ever Bilena Stick Foundation in Creme. I use this foudation a lot because it's really good for photography, not to mention, it's very cheap too. It gives medium to full coverage. Look at the marks and discoloration on her face, it's nearly gone after I applied the foundation. A bit of concealer and now she has a very flawless skin. 

Here I am using a warm brown eyeshadow to create a crease.

I'm straightening her hair with my pink Vidal Sassoon Flat Iron

Of all the makeovers that I did, this is my favorite. I love everything. From makeup to her hair. I used Krave's Organic Liquid Foundation in Cassata, added a lighter concealer under her eyes and contoured her face like there's no tomorrow! 

I am loving this Ever Bilena Ever Original Brow Pencil in Brown

Loving the pink eyeshadow on her

I discovered this product after watching one of Say's ( video. She said this will really hold the curls in the hair. It was in my "to buy" list for a long time and I was so happy when I found it in Landmark (Trinoma). I immediately bought it. Quick review: This is REALLY effective!

Céleteque Sun Care Facial Moisturizer (P150.00)
I'm still using my Myra-E Daily Sun Protect but after I'm done with it, I'm going to try this out. 

James Cooper "Jazzy Collection" Cream Foundation in CF-02 (P550.00)
I finally bought this foudation that I've been eyeing since January. I haven't tried it yet but I've heard a lot of good reviews about this. Say Artillero loves this foundation! 

Meixiuzi Eyelashes (P70.00)
I love false lashes, don't you?

Ever Bilena 3D Compact in Dark Baked Fusion (P150.00)

e.l.f. Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Sun Kissed (P129.75P285
I wasn't planning on buying this one since I already have 2 bronzers from e.l.f. but I was really intrigued with it so I just decided to buy it. 

Krave Goodies: Organic Liquid Foundation in Cassata (P385.00), Oil Eliminator & Skin Hydrator (P285.00), Mist Spritz (P200.00) 
I love me some Krave Minerale products!! I bought mine from CaramelSundaeOnline and the good thing about this online shop is that the seller is my neighbor!! I'm a lucky girl, right? 

Quick review: I have oily skin but when I use the Oil Eliminator and Mist Spritz together, my makeup stays on for a very very long time. No need for touch ups.. AMAZING!!
